The Partnership for a Secure America advances bipartisan solutions to critical national security and foreign policy challenges. An earlier grant supported a bipartisan group of senior congressional staff to receive intensive training in 2014 in the process of negotiation.This renewal grant will enable them to deepen their learning and apply it during the 114th Congress. PSA and the Harvard Program on Negotiation, who developed the original training, will collaborate on this phase also.The pilot project will indicate whether negotiation training, with subsequent reinforcement and practice, can help Congressional staff and Members work more effectively across party lines on national security and foreign policy issues.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of legislative negotiations training pilot
The Partnership for a Secure America works on Capitol Hill to promote bipartisan solutions to national security and foreign policy issues. Two previous grants supported joint negotiation training pilots developed and run with the Harvard Program on Negotiation. These programs trained Capitol Hill staff on best negotiation practices to improve congressional capacity to overcome policy impasses. Previous pilots, however, revealed a lack of existing simulations and cases based in a legislative context. This grant will support a Capitol Hill pilot program testing new training materials recently developed by the Harvard Kennedy School to address this shortcoming.
